I have installed 3 versions of FS2004 (Golden Wings, Silver Wings, Ford Tri-Motor Tribute)
plus a Demo FSX. On my three FS2004 versions all sliders are to the right, tweaked all CFG's like recomended in this forum & added some sceneries plus many GA aircraft (me no gusta big cattle haulers for stupid tourists nor jets nor windwills UNLESS they are Autogyros)
. The FSX Demo is limited to the Caribean area & I use to store & fly aircraft not compatible with FS9, with sliders about 50% & water effects high.
When Gary went flying to the other shore
the Ford tri-Motor site was blocked for a while. Then since a week ago it reopened & I was able to download many sceneries, aircraft & textures. They work flawlessly in my Windos 10 Home OS, a real Paradise for Low & Slow flights, piloting GA aircraft with a ventilator up front, floats, radial engines... ETCÉTERA!!
To my dismay, yesterday oh yesterday I discovered ONE Stutter place, when checking Ford Tri-Motor textures I just installed, before taking off from the Ford Factory Airfield in Dearborn MI. stutters started right away when paning around me from the VC & the Spot Plane view:
Undaunted I took position for take off at runway 12, since the Stutter case was mild & manageable:
I discovered there is a full US Army base here!
Strange, if I zoom-in a Little, stutters are almost gone:
Almost gone too if I look downward in Spot Plane view:
Stutters also diminish looking forward & augment when looking backwards, from VC & Spot Plane views:
After flying low & slow for 5 minuten, stutters are vanished!!
Since my Lap does not have access to memory cards for increasing RAM, I will use an external memory & see what happens. So far I have not discovered anything like this in any other FS2004. No, I do not want to move left any of those sliders. I juggled with Weather 3D Clouds & Cloud Coverage sliders to the left, with no stutter change. Nor there were any diferences in the sky clouds!! (with Weather Themes set to Building Storms)
